Clare Rae: Selected Videos
Experience a selection of Melbourne-based artist Clare Rae's playful stop-motion animations, which use her own body as her subject.
Melbourne-based artist Clare Rae makes playful stop-motion animations from photographic stills, using her own body as her subject. In each work she documents a series of exhaustive, repetitive actions that emphasise her body's occupation of space - its physicality, levity, gravity and motion.
Pursuing herself in infinite circles around a pole, across a couch and over and under a table, Rae explores the challenge of female self-representation, as well as the possibilities and limitations of video to articulate her individual perspective.
